Combined effects of nitric oxide and oxygen during acute pulmonary vasodilator testing. (1/889)

OBJECTIVES: We compared the ability of inhaled nitric oxide (NO), oxygen (O2) and nitric oxide in oxygen (NO+O2) to identify reactive pulmonary vasculature in pulmonary hypertensive patients during acute vasodilator testing at cardiac catheterization. BACKGROUND: In patients with pulmonary hypertension, decisions regarding suitability for corrective surgery, transplantation and assessment of long-term prognosis are based on results obtained during acute pulmonary vasodilator testing. METHODS: In group 1, 46 patients had hemodynamic measurements in room air (RA), 100% O2, return to RA and NO (80 parts per million [ppm] in RA). In group 2, 25 additional patients were studied in RA, 100% O2 and 80 ppm NO in oxygen (NO+O2). RESULTS: In group 1, O2 decreased pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) (mean+/-SEM) from 17.2+/-2.1 U.m2 to 11.1+/-1.5 U.m2 (p < 0.05). Nitric oxide caused a comparable decrease from 17.8+/-2.2 U.m2 to 11.7+/-1.7 U.m2 (p < 0.05). In group 2, PVR decreased from 20.1+/-2.6 U.m2 to 14.3+/-1.9 U.m2 in O2 (p < 0.05) and further to 10.5+/-1.7 U.m2 in NO+O2 (p < 0.05). A response of 20% or more reduction in PVR was seen in 22/25 patients with NO+O2 compared with 16/25 in O2 alone (p = 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: Inhaled NO and O2 produced a similar degree of selective pulmonary vasodilation. Our data suggest that combination testing with NO + O2 provides additional pulmonary vasodilation in patients with a reactive pulmonary vascular bed in a selective, safe and expeditious fashion during cardiac catheterization. The combination of NO+O2 identifies patients with significant pulmonary vasoreactivity who might not be recognized if O2 or NO were used separately.  (+info)

Long-term morbidity and mortality following hypoxaemic lower respiratory tract infection in Gambian children. (2/889)

Acute lower respiratory infections (ALRI) are the main cause of death in young children worldwide. We report here the results of a study to determine the long-term survival of children admitted to hospital with severe pneumonia. The study was conducted on 190 Gambian children admitted to hospital in 1992-94 for ALRI who survived to discharge. Of these, 83 children were hypoxaemic and were treated with oxygen, and 107 were not. On follow-up in 1996-97, 62% were traced. Of the children with hypoxaemia, 8 had died, compared with 4 of those without. The mortality rates were 4.8 and, 2.2 deaths per 100 child-years of follow-up for hypoxaemic and non-hypoxaemic children, respectively (P = 0.2). Mortality was higher for children who had been malnourished (Z-score < -2) when seen in hospital (rate ratio = 3.2; 95% confidence interval (CI) = 1.03-10.29; P = 0.045). Children with younger siblings experienced less frequent subsequent respiratory infections (rate ratio for further hospitalization with respiratory illness = 0.15; 95% CI = 0.04-0.50; P = 0.002). Children in Gambia who survive hospital admission with hypoxaemic pneumonia have a good prognosis. Survival depends more on nutritional status than on having been hypoxaemic. Investment in oxygen therapy appears justified, and efforts should be made to improve nutrition in malnourished children with pneumonia.  (+info)

Electrocardiographic signs of chronic cor pulmonale: A negative prognostic finding in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (3/889)

BACKGROUND: Chronic cor pulmonale (CCP) is a strong predictor of death in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aims of this study were to assess the prognostic role of individual ECG signs of CCP and of the interaction between these signs and abnormal arterial blood gases. METHODS AND RESULTS: Two hundred sixty-three patients (217 men) with COPD, mean age 67+/-9 years, were grouped according to whether they had no ECG signs (group 1, n=100) or >/=1 ECG signs (group 2, n=163) of CCP and were followed up for 13 years after an exacerbation of respiratory failure. The median survival was significantly shorter in group 2 than in group 1 (2.58 versus 3. 45 years, respectively; Mantel-Cox test, 9.58; P=0.002). The Cox regression analysis identified S1S2S3 pattern, right atrial overload (RAO), and alveolar-arterial oxygen gradient (PAO2-PaO2) >48 mm Hg during oxygen therapy as the strongest predictors of death, with hazard rate (HR)=1.81 (95% CI, 1.22 to 2.69), HR=1.58 (95% CI, 1.15 to 2.18), and HR=1.96 (95% CI, 1.19 to 3.25), respectively. The median survivals of patients having both S1S2S3 pattern and RAO (n=14) and of patients having either S1S2S3 pattern or RAO (n=77) were 1.33 and 2.70 years, respectively (P=0.022). Group 2 patients had a 3-year survival of 18% or 53%, depending on whether their PAO2-PaO2 during oxygen therapy was or was not >48 mm Hg. CONCLUSIONS: Some ECG signs of CCP and PAO2-PaO2 >48 mm Hg during oxygen therapy qualified as a simple and inexpensive tool for targeting subsets of COPD patients with severe or very severe short-term prognosis.  (+info)

Early inhaled glucocorticoid therapy to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia. (4/889)

BACKGROUND: The safety and efficacy of inhaled glucocorticoid therapy for asthma stimulated its use in infants to prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia. We tested the hypothesis that early therapy with inhaled glucocorticoids would decrease the frequency of bronchopulmonary dysplasia in premature infants. METHODS: We conducted a randomized, multicenter trial of inhaled beclomethasone or placebo in 253 infants, 3 to 14 days old, born before 33 weeks of gestation and weighing 1250 g or less at birth, who required ventilation therapy. Beclomethasone was delivered in a decreasing dosage, from 40 to 5 microg per kilogram of body weight per day, for four weeks. The primary outcome measure was bronchopulmonary dysplasia at 28 days of age. Secondary outcomes included bronchopulmonary dysplasia at 36 weeks of postmenstrual age, the need for systemic glucocorticoid therapy, the need for bronchodilator therapy, the duration of respiratory support, and death. RESULTS: One hundred twenty-three infants received beclomethasone, and 130 received placebo. The frequency of bronchopulmonary dysplasia was similar in the two groups: 43 percent in the beclomethasone group and 45 percent in the placebo group at 28 days of age, and 18 percent in the beclomethasone group and 20 percent in the placebo group at 36 weeks of postmenstrual age. At 28 days of age, fewer infants in the beclomethasone group than in the placebo group were receiving systemic glucocorticoid therapy (relative risk, 0.6; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.4 to 1.0) and mechanical ventilation (relative risk, 0.8; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.6 to 1.0). CONCLUSIONS: Early beclomethasone therapy did not prevent bronchopulmonary dysplasia but was associated with lower rates of use of systemic glucocorticoid therapy and mechanical ventilation.  (+info)

Evaluation of routine tracheal extubation in children: inflating or suctioning technique? (5/889)

We studied prospectively the effects of the technique of tracheal extubation on arterial haemoglobin oxygen saturation (SpO2) in 120 ASA I-III children, mean age 5.3 (range 0.25-16.9) yr. At completion of surgery, tracheal extubation was performed when spontaneous ventilation had resumed, children were fully awake and SpO2 was 99-100%. Children were allocated randomly to receive a single lung inflation manoeuvre with 100% oxygen before tracheal extubation (group I; n = 59) or to have the tracheal tube removed while applying suction through the tube (group S; n = 61). SpO2 was monitored during the first 5 min after tracheal extubation in the operating room. Supplementary oxygen was given if SpO2 decreased to less than 92%. The time between tracheal extubation and decrease in SpO2 to 92% (T92) was recorded. Children in group S required oxygen administration more frequently after tracheal extubation than those in group I (65.6% vs 45.8%; P = 0.04), and had a three-fold shortening of T92 (mean 25 (SD 19) s vs 85 (63) s; P = 0.0001). These effects were more pronounced in children less than 4 yr of age compared with older children. We conclude that tracheal extubation greatly impaired oxygenation and therefore administration of oxygen was appropriate. This impairment was more marked when suction was used, and in young children. Lung inflation with 100% oxygen before removal of the tracheal tube is advised before routine tracheal extubation in children.  (+info)

Vital capacity and tidal volume preoxygenation with a mouthpiece. (6/889)

We have measured oxygen wash-in in 20 volunteers undergoing preoxygenation with a face mask, mouthpiece alone and a mouthpiece with a noseclip, in a crossover study. Tidal volume breathing and maximal deep breath techniques were studied with each type of equipment. When tidal volume breathing was used, the face mask and mouthpiece with noseclip were comparable, but the mouthpiece alone achieved a lower end-expiratory oxygen concentration than the two other methods after 3 min (P < 0.001 and P < 0.01), and after 5 min (P < 0.05 in each case). Conversely, during preoxygenation with vital capacity breaths, the mouthpiece and mouthpiece with noseclip were comparable, and both were more effective than the face mask (P < 0.001). In a second study, 20 patients who had undergone preoxygenation before induction of anaesthesia were asked later if they would have preferred the face mask or mouthpiece for this procedure. Significantly more patients (14 of 18 who expressed a preference) favoured the mouthpiece (P < 0.05; confidence limits 0.56-0.92).  (+info)

Cost minimisation analysis of provision of oxygen at home: are the drug tariff guidelines cost effective? (8/889)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the level of oxygen cylinder use at which it becomes more cost effective to provide oxygen by concentrator at home in Northern Ireland, and to examine potential cost savings if cylinder use above this level had been replaced by concentrator in 1996. DESIGN: Cost minimisation analysis. SETTING: Area health boards in Northern Ireland. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Cost effective cut off point for switch to provision of oxygen from cylinder to concentrator. Potential maximum and minimum savings in Northern Ireland (sensitivity analysis) owing to switch to more cost effective strategy on the basis of provision of cylinders in 1996. RESULTS: In Northern Ireland it is currently cost effective to provide oxygen by concentrator when the patient is using three or more cylinders per month independent of the duration of the prescription. More widespread use of concentrators at this level of provision is likely to lead to a cost saving. CONCLUSIONS: The Drug Tariff prescribing guidelines, advocating that provision of oxygen by concentrator becomes cheaper when 21 cylinders are being used per month-are currently inaccurate in Northern Ireland. Regional health authorities should review their current arrangements for provision of oxygen at home and perform a cost analysis to determine at what level it becomes more cost effective to provide oxygen by concentrator.  (+info)

Portable oxygen concentrator (POC) is a portable device used to provide oxygen therapy to people requiring greater oxygen concentrations than the levels of ambient air. It is similar to a home oxygen concentrator, but is smaller in size and more mobile. The portable oxygen concentrator makes it easy for patients to travel freely; they are small enough to fit in a car and many concentrators are now FAA-approved for use on airplanes. Oxygen concentrators were developed in the 1970s. Beginning in the 2000s, manufacturers developed portable versions. The first generation of POCs were bulky, unreliable, and were not permitted on airplanes. Since that time, reliability has been continuously improved, and POCs now produce between one and six liters per minute (LPM) of oxygen. The portable concentrators can be powered by grid electricity, by low-voltage vehicle electrical current, or from an internal battery. Portable oxygen concentrators operate on the same principle as a home domestic concentrator, ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Hypoxia imaging of tumor and spatiotemporal analysis during oxygen inhalation. AU - Yamada, Ryo. AU - Horinouchi, Hirohisa. AU - Tsukada, Kosuke. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Tumor hypoxia is considered a potential therapeutic problem because it reduces the effects of radiation therapy. Clinical experience has shown that long-term tumor oxygenation cannot be achieved with oxygen inhalation, but the mechanisms behind this phenomenon remain unknown. In this study, we designed an optical system for evaluating spatiotemporal changes in tissue oxygen tension (pO2) by phosphorescence quenching. The system can measure continuous changes in pO2 at a fixed point and can also perform two-dimensional mapping of pO2 in any part of the tumor tissue. We implanted tumor tissue in a dorsal skinfold chamber of C57BL/6 mice and observed tumor growth. The mice received oxygen inhalation and pO2 was measured. Tumor pO2 increased after inhalation but the oxygen level was not maintained despite ...
A group of organizations representing home oxygen therapy patients, physicians, home oxygen providers, and oxygen system manufacturers issued a statement opposing provisions in the Presidents proposed 2008 budget that would threaten the home oxygen therapy benefit in Medicare. The group, which includes the American Association for Homecare, the National Association for Medical Direction of Respiratory Care, and National Home Oxygen Patients Association, strongly objected to a proposal in the budget that would force Medicare patients to assume the burden of owning and managing medical oxygen equipment in their homes after only 13 months of use. Currently, funding is capped at 36 months. Concerns over the proposed cuts are compounded by the fact that the Medicare home oxygen benefit is still experiencing the impact of several years of cuts enacted by Congress as part of the Medicare Modernization Act of 2003 and the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005. The statement says, We believe the proposed change in

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is the name for a collection of lung diseases usually caused by smoking. When symptoms become particularly bad this is called an exacerbation. Some exacerbations of COPD can be very severe and patients need support from breathing machines (ventilators) in addition to oxygen therapy. Previous studies have examined whether the use of a ventilator at home, termed home mechanical ventilation, could help improve peoples breathing and reduce the need for readmission to hospital, but these studied have not been able to demonstrate a benefit. This is thought to be due to the poor design of the studies rather than failure of the ventilator itself. This study is a UK-wide study to investigate if home mechanical ventilation in addition to home oxygen therapy is better than home oxygen therapy on its own ...

Long Term Oxygen Therapy (LTOT) is one of the main non pharmacologic treatments for patients with severe lung disease. This continuous or sub-continuous oxygen supplementation is generally introduced at home in patients who have chronic cardio respiratory failure and severe resting hypoxemia to maintain sufficient blood oxygenation and therefore preserve vital organ function.. LTOT effectiveness has mainly been evaluated and documented in patients with COPD, which also accounts for most of its prescriptions. In these patients, LTOT has been shown to have a beneficial impact on haemodynamics, exercise capacity, lung mechanics and mental state. Its implementation was furthermore associated with reduced yearly hospitalisation days and increased survival Measuring adherence is an extremely important and under-evaluated component of oxygen therapy. NOWOX, medical device has been designed,developed and manufactured to measure adherence to LTOT and additionally to measure patients respiration rate ...

BACKGROUND: Long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) has a strong evidence base in COPD patients with respiratory failure, but prescribing practices are recognized to need reform to ensure appropriate use and minimize costs. In the UK, since February 2006, all Home Oxygen prescription is issued by hospitals, making respiratory specialists totally in charge of home oxygen prescription. It has been widely noted that inappropriate home oxygen, often for intermittent use (short burst), is frequently prescribed in patients with COPD and related conditions with the intention to prevent hospital admissions outside of evidence based LTOT guidelines. We participated in a national Lung Improvement Project aimed at making LTOT use more evidence based. We utilised this unique opportunity of studying the effect of removal of oxygen from COPD patients (who did not meet LTOT criteria) on hospital admission rates.. METHODS: Primary and secondary care data sources were used to identify patients with COPD in a single ...
Introduction: A previous survey highlighted a very high degree of physiologically unnecessary home oxygen use in COPD patients (Bhattacharya M, Potter A, Mukherjee R. Assessing for Long Term Oxygen Therapy (LTOT) in an English town. Am J Resp Crit Care Med 2008;177:A665). A common reason for the unnecessary use is that hospital physicians discharge COPD patients with home oxygen pending physiological assessment in the hope of preventing future hospital admissions, which we set out to examine.. Methods: A retrospective review of COPD admissions and re-admissions of Birmingham East and North Primary Care Trust patients from April 2007- November 2010 based on International Classification of Diseases coding (J44); Welchs 2-sample t-test was applied to assess the significance of the difference in the admission rates of the 2 groups of COPD patients who receive and did not receive LTOT on discharge.. Results: A total of 1942 patients were eligible of which 295 received LTOT on discharge. The mean ...
WEDNESDAY, Dec. 26, 2018 (HealthDay News) - Home oxygen users often experience problems related to their oxygen equipment that may impact their quality of life, according to a report published in the December issue of the Annals of the American Thoracic Society.. Susan S. Jacobs, R.N., from Stanford University in California, and colleagues present recommendations from a multidisciplinary workshop convened with the goal of optimizing home oxygen therapy for adults.. The researchers note that the ideal supplemental oxygen therapy is patient-specific and should be provided by a qualified clinician and include an individualized prescription and a program of therapeutic education; oxygen systems that are safe, promote mobility, and treat hypoxemia should be offered. Oxygen users have recently reported problems with home oxygen use, including significant functional, mechanical, and financial problems and a lack of education related to the equipment; these can impact quality of life. Health care ...

The article focuses on the use of oxygen therapy in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) is one of the few treatments which has significant survival benefits in patients with severe hypoxaemia. In less severe hypoxaemic patients the benefits of LTOT on survival are less clear. Other benefits of oxygen administration are generally accepted. Reduced ventilation, especially during exercise, helps to avoid dynamic hyperinflation and hence reduces symptoms and increases exercise tolerance in the majority of patients with COPD, even in patients with mild hypoxaemia ...

Whether long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) improves quality of life in chronic hypoxaemia has been questioned. LTOT with an oxygen concentrator (C/C) and gas cylinders for ambulation is considered cumbersome compared to mobile liquid oxygen equipment (L). The hypothesis for this study was that LTOT with liquid oxygen treatment (L) improves patients health-related quality of life, but that it is also more expensive compared to concentrator (C/C) treatment. A prospective, randomized multicentre trial comparing C/C with L for LTOT was conducted during a six-month period. Fifty-one patients (29 on L and 22 on C/C) with chronic hypoxaemia, regularly active outside the home, participated in the study initially. Costs for oxygen were obtained from the pharmacies. Patient diaries and telephone contacts with members of the healthcare sector were used to estimate costs. Health-related quality of life was measured by the Sickness Impact Profile (SIP) and the EuroQol, instruments at the start and after 6 ...

COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 12 million people currently diagnosed with the disease. Risk factors for COPD include smoking, environmental exposure to lung irritants, and genetic predisposition. People with COPD often experience symptoms of chronic cough, shortness of breath, excess mucus production, and wheezing. In COPD, the airways in the lungs are chronically obstructed, and if left untreated, this obstruction can cause significant damage to the lungs and lasting disability. The quality of life of a person with COPD decreases as the disease progresses, making treating and managing COPD in the moderate stages important. Long-term oxygen therapy has been shown to help people with severe COPD that is characterized by very low blood oxygen levels at rest to live longer and healthier lives. This study will determine whether supplemental oxygen therapy is helpful for people with COPD that is characterized by moderately low blood oxygen levels at ...
The key aim of this guideline is to make oxygen use in emergency and healthcare settings safer, simpler and more effective. Oxygen is probably the commonest drug used in the care of patients who present with medical emergencies. Prior to the publication of the first British Thoracic Society Guideline for Emergency Oxygen Use in Adult Patients in 2008,1 ambulance teams and emergency department teams were likely to give oxygen to virtually all breathless or seriously ill patients and also to a large number of non-hypoxaemic patients with conditions such as ischaemic heart disease or stroke based on custom and practice. About 34% of UK ambulance journeys in 2007 involved oxygen use.4 This translated to about two million instances of emergency oxygen use per annum by all UK ambulance services, with further use in patients homes, GP surgeries and in hospitals. Audits of oxygen use and oxygen prescription have shown consistently poor performance in many countries, and most clinicians who deal with ...

Not everyone with breathlessness will benefit from oxygen therapy. Oxygen therapy will only help you if you have low levels of oxygen in your blood.. If your doctor thinks that you will benefit from oxygen therapy, he or she will send you for an oxygen assessment. After your assessment, if the specialist thinks that you will benefit from oxygen therapy, you will be prescribed oxygen for use at home.. To get the benefits of oxygen therapy, you will need to use your oxygen for at least 15 hours a day. This is known as long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT). LTOT is normally provided at home using an oxygen concentrator, a machine which takes air from the room and separates the oxygen from the other gases in the air, so that you can breathe in pure oxygen. Oxygen is breathed through a nasal cannula (a small plastic tube that fits inside your nostrils) or a face mask, whichever suits you best.. If you want to use oxygen away from home, you can use portable cylinders of oxygen with a nasal cannula or mask. ...

Background: Although the incidence of COPD is rapidly increasing in women, knowledge is lacking concerning differences in relative mortality and causes of death in women compared with men. We aimed to analyze differences in relative mortality and cause-specific mortality between men and women on long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) for COPD.. Methods: Patients starting LTOT for COPD in Sweden between January 1, 1987, and December 31, 2004, were prospectively followed until termination of LTOT or through December 31, 2004. Causes of death according to the Swedish National Causes of Death Register were compared between the study group and the general Swedish population matched for age and sex, with the relative mortality expressed as standardized mortality rates (SMRs).. Results: A total of 7,646 patients, 4,033 women and 3,613 men, were followed for a median of 1.7 years (range 0-18.0). No patient was lost to follow-up. A total of 5,448 patients, 2,745 women and 2,703 men, died. Women had a higher SMR ...

In a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled study of patients undergoing colonoscopy, sedation with an inhaled mixture of nitrous oxide/oxygen was compared with conventional intravenous sedation (pethidine 50 mg, midazolam 2.5 mg). In the patients studied, no significant differences were noted in number of pain episodes, need for additional intravenous sedation, or patient pain scores between the group receiving the nitrous oxide/oxygen mixture (n = 30) and those managed with conventional benzodiazepine/opiate injection (n = 29). Both methods were significantly more effective than placebo (n = 30). Six patients in the benzodiazepine/opiate group had oxygen desaturation, whereas none did in the nitrous oxide/oxygen group. Duration of stay after the procedure was significantly shorter in the gas inhalation group than in those receiving conventional intravenous sedation. Except for patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, nitrous oxide/oxygen inhalation is a safe and acceptable

Objective To investigate the pathological change of ventilator-induced lung injury and oxygen inhalation and the regularity of white blood cell changes in broncho alveolar lavage fluid(BALF).Methods One hundred and eight newborn rabbits were divided randomly into two groups according to high concentration oxygen(FiO_2=1.0) and low concentration oxygen(FiO_2=0.45).Each group was sub-divided into three parts:high peak inspiratory pressure group (HPIP),moderate peak inspiratory pressure group (MPIP)and low peak inspiratory pressure group (LPIP). All rabbits were given mechanical ventilation(MV) and killed to obtain lungs at 1, 3, 6 hours after trail respectively. Cells in BALF were counted and the percentage of WBC was classified in sediment film. The ratio of wet to dry of lungs was detected, at the same time,pathological section was analyzed.Results The findings were demonstrated within 6 hours in newborn rabbits by MV. The white blood cell count ventilated with hyperxia or hypoxia groups was higher than
RATIONALE:Domiciliary oxygen therapy is commonly prescribed for patients with interstitial lung disease and hypoxemia, either at rest or during exertion, with the aim of improving symptoms and functional status. OBJECTIVES:This study aimed to explore perspectives of adults with interstitial lung disease about domiciliary oxygen therapy, comparing insights from patients using and not using oxygen therapy. METHODS:A qualitative study using semistructured interviews was undertaken on 24 adults residing in and near Melbourne, Australia who had a diagnosis of interstitial lung disease and met the Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand guidelines for domiciliary oxygen therapy. Study subjects included individuals who were oxygen-naive (n = 12) and oxygen-experienced (n = 12). Interviews were transcribed verbatim and coded independently by two investigators in accordance with the grounded theory method of analysis. Themes were established by consensus. RESULTS:Patients using domiciliary oxygen ...
Background: Sleep hypoventilation has been proposed as a cause of progressive hypercapnic respiratory failure and death in patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).. Objective: To determine the effects of nocturnal, non-invasive bi-level pressure support ventilation (NIV) on survival, lung function and quality of life in severe hypercapnic COPD.. Design: A multicentre, open-label, randomized controlled trial of NIV plus long term oxygen therapy (LTOT) versus LTOT alone.. Setting: University Hospital sleep/ respiratory medicine departments.. Patients: Severe, stable, smoking-related COPD (FEV1.0 , 1.5 L or ,50% predicted and FEV1.0/FVC ,60% with awake PaCO2 , 46mmHg and on LTOT for at least 3 months) and age less than 80 years. Patients with sleep apnea (Apnea-hypopnea Index , 20/ hr) or morbid obesity (BMI ,40) were excluded.. Intervention: Night-time bilevel pressure support ventilation.. Measurements: Survival, spirometry, arterial blood gases, polysomnography, general ...
Decreasing the duration of invasive mechanical ventilation by early safe extubation is a major clinical goal in intensive care unit (ICU) [1]. Prolonged intubation increases the risk of ventilator-induced lung injury, ventilator-induced diaphragm dysfunction, myopathy and infections. Nonetheless, patients management in the post-extubation period can be challenging and every effort should be made to avoid re-intubation, which is associated with significantly increased morbidity and mortality [1].. To this end, in this issue of the Annals of Intensive Care, Dr. Fernandez and colleagues report findings from a randomized controlled trial comparing low-flow oxygen supplied through nasal prongs or facial mask versus high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) for 24 h after extubation as respiratory supports in patients at high risk of extubation failure [2]. This is the third large clinical trial recently published by the research group of Dr. Fernandez on the same topic, the other two being comparisons of ...
We reviewed evidence on the effectiveness of high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy in supporting childrens breathing. We found 11 studies in children.. Background. HFNC therapy delivers a mixture of air and oxygen via tubing that sits just inside the nostrils. For children hospitalized with breathing difficulties caused by conditions such as pneumonia or trauma or after surgery, HFNC therapy may help to support their breathing. This may reduce the need for other forms of breathing support such as life support. HFNC therapy can be used within the hospital ward setting, the emergency department or the intensive care unit. This Cochrane review is important because it assesses available evidence on the safety and effectiveness of HFNC compared with other forms of respiratory support, to help inform clinicians caring for children with breathing difficulties.. Search date. We searched medical databases from the 1950s until April 2013.. Study characteristics. We included studies on children from four ...
Sleep disturbance related symptoms are common in patients with long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT). Essentially, there were only few previous reports about the sleep architecture in patients with respiratory disease, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). This study aims to clarify the objective sleep state and the elements that affect sleep architecture in Chronic Respiratory Failure (CRF) patients with focus on clinical cases of chronic hypercapnia. 13 subjects with chronic respiratory failure were enrolled in the study. All the subjects were pre-evaluated by pulmonary function test and Arterial blood gas analysis (ABG) including exercise testing. Polysomnography (PSG) test was performed in each subject with supplemental oxygen. The estimated base line PaCO2 value that reflects overall PaCO2 including sleep period was calculated using equation of PaCO2[2.4×(HCOˉ3)-22]from obtained ABG value just before PSG test. 6 subjects were classified as hypercapnic group (base line

1) Nasal congestion and nasal catheter oxygen inhalation method: This oxygen inhalation method is simple in equipment and convenient to use. There are two types of nasal congestion: single-plug and double-plug: The single-plug method uses a suitable model to plug in the vestibule of the nose, and it is in close contact with the nasal cavity (the other nostril is open), and only oxygen is injected when inhaling, so the oxygen concentration More stable. The double plug method is to place two smaller nasal congestion at the same time on both sides of the nostril. There is still a gap around the nasal congestion, and the patient can breathe air at the same time. The patient is more comfortable but the oxygen concentration is not stable enough. The nasal catheter method is to insert a catheter (commonly used urinary catheter) through the nostril into the back of the soft palate at the top of the nasal cavity. The oxygen concentration is constant, but after a long period of time, it will feel ...
Methods On 17 March 2018, the surface of oxygen cylinders and regulators located in ambulances at an emergency medical services (EMS) station in North Alabama (n=9) and at an offsite oxygen cylinder storage area (n=70) were swabbed using sterile cotton-tipped applicators saturated in an 0.9% NaCl solution. These cotton-tipped applicators were then streaked across the surface of HardyCHROM MRSA plates, followed by incubation at 36°C for 24 hours. The growth of pink or magenta colonies was considered a positive indication for the presence of MRSA. The motivation for assessing oxygen cylinders at the offsite storage area was to outline the persistence of MRSA on stored oxygen cylinders. ...

Benefits of Oxygen Therapy. All the living things rely on oxygen for their survival. The reason behind that is oxygen is a vital necessity for survival purposes. It facilitates in production of the energy required by our bodies and also plays a significant role in keeping our body systems free from toxins. Note that oxygen therapy is a form of treatment which is useful in the healing of wounds, improving the quality of life and also in increasing the lifespan of people. Experts in the medical profession refer to oxygen therapy as a type of treatment that uses supplemental oxygen to treat different medical conditions. There are two main types of oxygen therapies that are very common and can easily be offered to patients who may want them. These therapies include normobaric oxygen therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Normobaric oxygen therapy is being provided to patients by administering supplemental oxygen at the same pressure of our standard atmosphere. Note normobaric oxygen therapy should ...

Review question We reviewed the evidence regarding effects of oxygen compared with air on breathlessness in people with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with only mildly or moderately decreased blood oxygen levels.. Background People with COPD are sometimes prescribed oxygen therapy to reduce the severity of breathlessness. However, the use of oxygen in people who do not have severely reduced levels of oxygen in their bloodstream remains controversial, as little is known about its effectiveness. Additionally, oxygen is relatively costly and is not given without risk, particularly to smokers because of the risk of fire.. Study characteristics We examined the research published to 12 July 2016. We included studies of oxygen therapy versus air delivered through nasal prongs or mask during exertion, continuously, as needed over a defined period or as short-burst oxygen before exertion. Study participants were 18 years of age or older, had received a diagnosis of COPD, had low oxygen ...

The long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) has been shown to increase survival in patients with severe resting hypoxemia. The adherence to LTOT may also simultaneously affect the development of concomitant pulmonary hypertension (PH) due to COPD with hypoxemia. We retrospectively reviewed 276 cases of COPD with or without PH assessed by right heart catheterization (RHC) to investigate whether adherence to continuous LTOT had a prophylactic effect on the development of PH in a time interval of two years. In contrast to the patients in the non-compliance group (PH prevalence 64.2%), patients with excellent compliance of adhering to continuous LTOT | 15 h per day in the compliance group (PH prevalence 37.6%) are more liable to postpone the development of PH due to hypoxic COPD for at least two years. Adherence to LTOT ≥ 15 h/day is strongly recommended in order to lower the risk and delay the development of consequent PH in COPD with hypoxemia.

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to simulate an in flight environment at sea level with a fractional inspired concentration of oxygen (FiO2) of 0.15 to determine how much supplemental oxygen was needed to restore a subjects oxygen saturation (SaO2) to 90% or to the level previously attained when breathing room air (FiO2 of 0.21). METHODS: Three groups were selected with normal, obstructive, and restrictive lung function. Using a sealed body plethysmograph an environment with an FiO2 of 0.15 was created and mass spectrometry was used to monitor the FiO2. Supplemental oxygen was administered to the patient by nasal cannulae. SaO2 was continuously monitored and recorded at an FiO2 of 0.21, 0.15, and 0.15 + supplemental oxygen. RESULTS: When given 2 l/m of supplemental oxygen all patients in the 15% environment returned to a similar SaO2 value as that obtained using the 21% oxygen environment. One patient with airways obstruction needed 3 l/m of supplemental oxygen to raise his SaO2 above 90%. ...

Consider using a standard pediatric-size face mask to deliver oxygen to either an adult or child. Using a pediatric size allows the mask to fit more easily over the small stoma, and creates a better seal for oxygen delivery. Loop the mask strap around the patients head and place the oxygen mask over the stoma in a sideways position, which may allow a better fit. The standard oxygen mask has a small rise intended to fit over the nose. Pad this rise with gauze four-by-fours as you place the mask against the patients neck. Add additional padding any where you see fit to create a seal, and secure the mask as snugly as possible by tightening the mask strap. ...
Breathlessness is a cardinal symptom of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) is given to improve survival time in people with COPD and severe chronic hypoxaemia at rest. The efficacy of oxygen therapy for breathlessness and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in people with COPD and mild or no hypoxaemia who do not meet the criteria for LTOT has not been established.To determine the efficacy of oxygen versus air in mildly hypoxaemic or non-hypoxaemic patients with COPD in terms of (1) breathlessness; (2) HRQOL; (3) patient preference whether to continue therapy; and (4) oxygen-related adverse events.We searched the Cochrane Airways Group Register, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), MEDLINE and Embase, to 12 July 2016, for randomised controlled trials (RCTs). We handsearched the reference lists of included articles.We included RCTs of the effects of non-invasive oxygen versus air on breathlessness, HRQOL or patient preference ...
Bronchiolitis is one of the most common reasons for pediatric hospitalization in the United States, incurring costs of $734 million each year.1 Supportive care is the mainstay of treatment, with numerous studies demonstrating the futility of adjunct therapies including corticosteroids, β-agonists, epinephrine, and hypertonic saline. In this issue of Pediatrics, Kalburgi and Halley2 describe patterns of adoption of high-flow nasal cannula (HFNC) therapy in general pediatric units in the United States and Canada, illustrating wide uptake of another intervention for bronchiolitis that is not supported by evidence.. Surveying 114 hospitals that participate in the Pediatric Research in Inpatient Settings Network, Kalburgi and Halley2 found that 48% of hospitals use HFNC therapy for bronchiolitis on the general pediatric ward. At three-quarters of hospitals using HFNC therapy, locally developed protocols guided its use. These guidelines are heterogeneous and vary in their scope, with only 68% ...
